    I've occasionally wanted such a thing when I've put something heavy enough on the passenger seat to trigger the seat occupied sensor.

    Only sort of bike but... I have a Raspberry Pi that I plug my helmet camera into (Contour Roam) that then automatically copies of the video files on connect (to make room for new) and has a script that sets the clock ready for unplugging. I need to add a button to trigger the script (rather than doing it from my phone) and a status light (off=camera not connected, flashing=files being copied, solid=copy done, rapid flashing=clock set/unplug now).

    You could make your own custom bike computer? I can't think of something useful that you can't do with a Garmin though.

    Alleged sports that are judged with points awarded based on the opinion of someone rather than something objective like a stopwatch.

    I've got very mixed feelings about people travelling. Now is not the time for a fortnight on a sunny beach somewhere IMHO but I understand the desire to see family for people that don't live round the corner from their parents. Difficult to ban one while allowing the other and wouldn't play with the typical Tory anyway.

    On that note I don't get the resistance against letting double vaccinated people from the EU / USA etc. in. Surely the vaccines are all the same...

    People who have been fully vaccinated in the EU or US will not need to isolate when coming to England from an amber list country.

    The change will come into force at 04:00 BST on Monday.

    vaccinations over the rest of summer nudge up to 90%

    Which is really ~70% of people

    Are there enough refuseniks out there to put that percentage in jeopardy

    As I understand it while we aren't vaccinating 20% of the population (under 18s) we are unlikely to get to herd immunity so it is kind of a moot point. People should get the jab to protect themselves as much as anything else, plenty of very unwell under 40s I'm hospital.

    Came through in under a week for both my other half and me. Perhaps your address is different on some NHS system somewhere? Can you check that bit with your GP?

    I got the paper letter version that they post to the address on file on request so you don't need to provide any ID at all.
